Host Jimmy Kimmel reveals famed Oscars red carpet is now champagne-colored: 'No blood will be shed'

Jimmy Kimmel, the host of the Oscars, revealed that the famed red carpet has undergone a color change.

Instead of the traditional red carpet, this year's Oscars will feature a champagne-colored carpet.

Kimmel stated that the change was made so that "no blood will be shed" on the carpet.

The red carpet has long been a staple of the Oscars, with celebrities showcasing their glamorous outfits on it.

However, the carpet has also seen its fair share of mishaps, with some celebrities taking spills or suffering wardrobe malfunctions.

The switch to a champagne-colored carpet is seen as a way to reduce the risk of accidents and make for a smoother event.

The 2023 Oscars will be held on March 26 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The event will be a hybrid affair, with both in-person and virtual attendance options available.

As always, viewers can expect to see their favorite celebrities dressed to the nines as they make their way down the newly colored carpet.
